From New Deal to Green New Deal Lessons from the post-war shift
In a project for Forum New Economy, Laurie Laybourn-Langton (IPPR) explores the strategies and means of organisation employed by those seeking a paradigm shift before, during and after WWII. The study was presented at the Fifth New Paradigm Workshop in Paris last year, where we also interviewed Laurie about his work.

To better understand how political-economic paradigms can shift, Forum New Economy commissioned a study that seeks to analyse past paradigm shifts. On September 16, 2019 Laurie Laybourn-Langton (IPPR) presented his findings at our workshop on the Economics of a Green New Deal in Paris (see presentation slides below).
We also had the chance to do an interview with Laurie about the New Deal under Franklin D. Roosevelt and the influence of intellectuals like John Maynard Keynes.
